A Not So Common Lizard

Discovered this little chap hiding under the draught excluder in the front room the other night - a very cold and sleepy common lizard
We've had a number of others of his ilk visit us in the wee small hours over the years, several of these have unfortunately turned up dead and once I even stepped on a recently deceased individual whilst I was heading for the fridge in the dark, but this is the first one we've managed to capture on camera. Admittedly the photo is pretty terrible, but it was difficult to focus the camera whilst holding the little guy at the same time! Anyway, you get the idea.
After the photocall he started to warm up a little so I took him outside to the safety of a small woodpile away from predators and small, determined dogs.
